So its like a alchole altered motor with a turbo. nice!
Alcy should negate the need for a giant IC as well.

Should have turned the turbo around so you could just cut a holein the bumper for the intake

yallgotboost-

........that should be a pretty sick creation when it is finished. What is the projected weight for it when completed?

Are those s/s or mild steel headers? Also what do you plan to run as far as a transmission and what rear out back and style suspension?

Do you propose to keep it all under the hood? Would make for one hell of a sleeper. Make sure you either get the headers high temp coated or at the least wrap them in header wrap (may cause metal fatigue and cracking). The underhood heat in the FC engine bay with any turbocharged motor can get excessive and will affect the cooling system.

Pay us a visit at the V8RX7 forum:

Isn't that bumper exhaust going to melt the plastic?

AND what about the fumes when you're crusing for chicks?

I think he means the heat off the turbine housing, not the DP.

I'm a rotary purist that doesn't even own a rotary. I'd like to see what that kind of money invested in a 20B setup would do

BUT! I have a lot of respect for someone who can do that kind of work! Looks good man! Good luck at the track.
